November 19th, 2011 by Hayden

Here’s an overview of SWTOR Guide. For more information and gameplay recommendations, check out this SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle.

This article is a preliminary SWTOR guide that explains details and some background about the game. Star Wars the Old Republic is a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game) by Bioware and LucasArts which is based on the popular big screen film, Star Wars by LucasFilms.

The storyline is driven by the original theme, the never-ending conflict between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. The entire SWTOR story occurs in the time before Dark Vader and Luke Skywalker. SWTOR is all about choosing an alliance a class to play and battling your way through missions and the vast galaxy with your allies.

The game offers unique features including space combat, the availability of crew skills and entire starships to manage. Fans of the movie will be able to experience everything they love about Star Wars first hand, from the cute beeping of R2D2 and his fellow C2PO, encountering familiar races and of course the black market. The available classes are also all derived from characters created in George Lucas’ Star Wars. The known available classes would of course include the popular Jedi. So far, there are eight known classes which are the Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, Trooper, Bounty Hunter, Imperial Agent, Sith Warrior, Sith Inquisitor and the Smuggler class played by Harrison Ford as Hans Solo in the film.

As the story has it, the Galactic Republic’s main mission is to maintain peace and protect the people of the republic. The Republic’s protectors are the SWTOR Jedi Knights of the Jedi order. The other powerful opposing force in Star Wars: the Old Republic is the Sith Empire. Lead by the Dark Emperor, the Empire’s main objective is destroying the Republic and gaining complete power.

The game not only features high tech SWTOR starships to player’s enjoyment, but there are vast planets to explore and land on as well. Known planets so are are: Tython (the Jedi’s home), Korriban, Hutta, Ord Mantell, Coruscant, Balmorra, Alderaan, Tatooine, Dromundkaas, Taris, Belsavis, Voss, Hoth, Nar Shaddaa, Corellia, Ilum and Quesh. With that many number of planets, imagine just how large a game SWTOR is. Well folks, that’s it for our introductory SWTOR guide. Stay tuned for more details and guides about SWTOR that will be made available here at SWTORGuide.net.

September 6th, 2011 by admin

This article provides a preliminary guide for SWTOR, more advanced content such as related gameplay strategies could be found in this SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle.

I know this post isĀ  a little late, but nevertheless here it is. Over at PAX Prime, Bioware confirmed the beta weekend and which week it started for Star Wars: The Old Republic. They also featured an Alderaan PvP Warzone and how it rolls out. The most revealing part of the show was about the Open World PvP that everyone knew for the first time. Here are some of the details

– Many neutral planets up for grabs with multiple control points (ie. bases, and turrets)

– Planet Ilum was the planet used as a reference

– If a faction takes control of planetary defences, bombing runs can be called in on opposing base

– Players will receive Valor and Mercenary points for participation. Mercenary points can be exchanged for the best PVP gear

Let’s hope more will be revealed after the Beta Weekend. While we wait, here’s a video link about Alderaan PvP.
